New York, NY (PRWEB) January 30, 2012
Mimeo, the leading online printing and distribution solutions company, today announced that Chuck Gehman, Vice President of Product Platforms, will be hosting members of the Automation Solutions Network at an event scheduled for January 31 through February 1 at the company’s facility in Memphis, TN.
The event will feature a panel discussion on automated workflows that will also include James Cozart, Vice President of Sales, Marketing and Customer Service at online printing firm 48HourPrint.com. Attendees will have an opportunity to see workflow automation in action with tours of both the Mimeo facility and the adjacent FedEx shipping facility.
“As a company, we have always sought to deliver the most efficient digital print workflow possible for our customers,” said Adam Slutsky, Mimeo Chief Executive Officer. “Our selection by the leadership of the Automation Solutions Network as a host for this conference further affirms the progress we have made in developing a world-class automation solution.”
The Mimeo Memphis digital print manufacturing and data center is representative of the company’s facilities in both the U.S. and Europe. Altogether, Mimeo facilities process over 1,000,000 custom orders per year placed via a proprietary cloud-based customer facing interface, with approximately half scheduled for delivery as early as the following morning. Each order passes through a multi-step manufacturing and quality control workflow that is continually optimized by the Mimeo engineering team.
“The selection of Mimeo.com and 48HourPrint.com for our panel discussion, and the tour of both the Mimeo and FedEx shipping facilities is no accident, with each company bringing a unique set of experience to B2B printing and distribution,” said Brandon Iskey, JDF certification program administrator at Printing Industries of America and organizer of the event. “The opportunity to learn from and observe how these companies implement automation solutions is a rare opportunity for a behind-the-scenes look at how automation theory is put into practice.”
